Look out New York - you are about to be blown away by the talents of some of Dereham's finest singers and musicians!
A group of 40 students and supporters from JDT Music Academy will be heading to the Big Apple on Friday, March 31 for a week packed with live performances and sightseeing.
K-OS! and RockavoX have been rehearsing for weeks in preparation for the tour, which will see them performing at venues including BB Kings in Times Square, Central Park and Trump Towers.
K-OS! members Neo Spalding, 11, Thomas Fuller, 12, George Crisp, 14, James Rodwell, 16, Sean Thacker, 16 and Lexie Fields, 15, have also recorded three of their original tracks.
The groups had to raise £1000 for equipment hire for the tour, and were thrilled to be supported by Dereham Lions who donated £100.
